I agree that it can be a disorder.  The article compares gaming disorder to gambling addiction.  You can gamble without having a gambling addiction and you can game without having gaming disorder.  Gaming disorder is specifically a label for an unhealthy addiction to it, which does happen.  Not all gamers have it, but denying it happens at all doesn't do the people that have it any favors.
